What a man, what a man, what a mighty good (little) man. Tara shares a party in honor of her little man's first birthday: My son Beckett was turning one, and I wanted to throw a memorable party that everyone would enjoy! Since I am a graphic designer, I naturally was really excited to design the invitations, and decided to run with a 'little man' theme, since Beckett has always been quite the little man in our lives.
I made felt mustaches on sticks, as well as handmade bow ties on sticks, so guests could wear those around. I wanted to create a really fun environment, and filled the house with balloons and paper poms hung from the ceiling. I made a necktie 'Happy Birthday Beck!' banner and randomly hid mustaches on photos throughout the house.
The guests' favorite was a photo booth we set up in a corner, complete with a 'Bucket O' Props' that included big glasses, top hats, neckties and of course mustaches! Guests could feast on chocolate cigars and necktie cookies, along with cupcakes that I decorated with individual handmade bow ties. The 'little man' himself was decked out in a little tie & converse high tops and looked quite snazzy! The party was perfect not only for all the kids, but for the adults as well, who doesn't love dressing up?!
